Near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) is a powerful characterization technique with the ability to simultaneously investigate the structural and optical properties of individual nanomaterials!

The WITec UHTS 300 Spectrometer will be the latest addition to the Eisele Group’s Spectroscopy and Nano-Imaging Laboratory. The new fiber-coupled spectrometer and EMCCD camera upgrades the functionality of our current WITec NSOM, which is funded by our NSF Major Research Instrument grant award. These upgrades are an essential part of our framework for comprehensive studies of nanoscale light-harvesting and energy transport.

We are grateful to the WITec team for their invaluable and continued support over the years, and their passion for science and research!
